Interview with Docia Zefirek

What is your writing process?
First, I ask a lot of questions. Once I I know the answers, I write, so that the reader can go through discovering things with me. Together we have fun and become more knowledgeable.
Do you remember the first story you ever read, and the impact it had on you?
One of the stories that has impacted me was about the animals, that I saw every day, behind my window. That was when I understood that everything and everyone had a story to tell.
How do you approach cover design?
To design the cover, I think about the introduction of the characters and the story. The cover design is like a handshake, when you meet someone for the first time!
What are your five favorite books, and why?
There are too many to list, and it would be unfair to favor one over another. All books I have ever read were like the doors to a new, exciting world.
What do you read for pleasure?
Hmm, the question should be, what I do not read for pleasure... :)
What is your e-reading device of choice?
I love all the devices, there is always this exciting moment before opening the new book..
What book marketing techniques have been most effective for you?
Always the word of the mouth.
Describe your desk
Very messy, yet organized in my own, special way.
Where did you grow up, and how did this influence your writing?
I do not see that as a particular influence, it was more the loving people I grew up with. I was always encouraged to learn, explore and be curious!
When did you first start writing?
Very early
What's the story behind your latest book?
You will know that, once you read it! I invite you to do so hoping that you will enjoy reading it, as much as I enjoyed writing and illustrating it!
